T-Mobile rings in the New Year in the role of innovation driver for the mobile telephony sector by launching an all-new PDA. T-Mobile's Ameo is creating a new category in the mobile device market, uniting today's computer functions, mobile broadband transmission technology and telephone functions in an attractively designed exterior. Thanks to its innovative concept the Ameo can be used with or without its QWERTZ/QWERTY keyboard. Connected at the side to the keyboard's magnetic strip, it can be easily attached. Whichever option is preferred, its large-format color display, powerful processor, spacious hard disk, array of interfaces, long battery life and many other features all add up to a stylishly indispensable device.

The Ameo, designed and manufactured by HTC (based on the HTC Athena reference design), supplies mobile access to almost all applications, information and connections commonly needed. Including not only singleband HSDPA/UMTS and quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE but also W-LAN b/g and Bluetooth 2.0, it offers users the fastest available mobile transmission wherever they are, via T-Mobile's mobile telephony network.

With the introduction of Ameo T-Mobile continue its successful cooperation with HTC, the world's leading provider of Microsoft Windows Mobile devices, as partner. T-Mobile set standards already in the past by providing its customers with innovative PDAs like MDA Pro and MDA Vario II.

T-Mobile's new multi-talent is a must-have for business users such as managers, sales and service staff, architects or assessors, as a convenient alternative to juggling mini-laptop. The Ameo tracks down the most efficient mobile connections to corporate networks or the Web in almost any location. For exceptionally fast, simple E-Mail communication, the Ameo offers both the Blackberry E-Mail push service and Microsoft's Push E-Mail solution. With web'n'walk Ameo also makes Internet browsing very comfortable.

Significantly smaller and lighter than a mini-laptop, the Ameo is scarcely larger than PDA phone models such as the MDA Vario II. With the latest Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system plus Office applications pre-installed, its computer power could be compared to a small laptop. The Intel Bulverde 624 MHz processor and generous RAM for applications and data enable multiple programs to be used in parallel without compromising on speed.

The 8 GB hard drive is roomy enough for plenty of information, and the built-in "G Sensor" "saves" data if the device is dropped accidentally and can be used for internet navigation instead of scrolling VGA touchscreen. Users can run presentations directly via the projector and TV outputs. The 3-megapixel auto focus camera with flash delivers high-quality photos and film. And the Ameo also features integrated GPS module, transforming it into a sat-nav system when used with the appropriate software such as T-Mobile NaviGate. When work is over, the Ameo comes into its own as an entertainment center, with integrated media player and stereo speakers for playing your favorite MP3s and more.

The Ameo is a joint effort of T-Mobile and HTC and will be introduced first to market globally in an exclusive version. T-Mobile latest Pocket PC Phone Edition is available from March 2007 at 499,95 Euro with a 24-month Relax 100 tariff. Prices without a subscription weren't announced today.

Nice device ;

One question ;

How do you make phonecalls, with a bleutooth ear device or just holding the device near you head ?

Thanks

Holding it to the ear like a slice of toast will work but I don't think it's an option for most of us. wink So yes, Bluetooth headsets might be the best option (and will work as Bluetooth headsets work for all Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Editions).
